Beach Yoga


This class is taught by:

Kerri Gawreluk

It was an innate curiosity plus a dash of on-the-job stress that led Kerri to her first yoga class many moons ago. Once through the door, it was love at first asana. Kerri credits her yoga practice with helping her open up to gratitude a little more, beat herself up a little less, and become more authentic in her teaching, relationships, and life in general. She is a certified yoga teacher in the ISHTA tradition as well as a Reiki master, and her classes are a creative, richly layered mix of movement and meditation that nurture the body and soul on many levels. She holds a separate certification in Prenatal yoga and has a passion and affinity for sharing yoga with families and kids of all ages. With equal parts whole-heartedness, humility and humor, Kerri's intention, as a teacher and fellow student, is to do her best to make sure everyone who crosses her path feels seen and supported, exactly where they are.

Shannon Carlin

Shannon (E-RYT 200 & 
RPYT)visited ashrams with her parents as a child and then many years later, found herself in a yoga class one day. Though unfamiliar with the poses, the breath, and of course-sanskrit, she immediately felt a sense of belonging and of coming home. The experience resonated so deeply with her that she knew she had taken her first steps on a life-long path of study, practice and devotion.Shannon teaches a full-spectrum, balanced practice from challenging, upbeat vinyasa flow to bliss-out restorative. So whether you want to move, play and flow or simply sit comfortably and breathe consciously, you are always welcome in class. Through creative and thoughtful sequencing, Shannon offers a safe and inviting space to explore your boundaries and awaken your innate potential. In her class you'll experience alignment-based flow with clear direction, an uplifting theme and hands-on adjustments set to eclectic music. In between the movement of your breath and body, you'll find an ever-evolving sense of connection to the most authentic parts of yourself and a deeper sense of engagement with the world around you. Come as you are and expect to leave class feeling empowered, focused and inspired.She has completed her 200hr certification with Bernadette Birney, Restorative training with Jillian Pranksy, Prenatal Certification with Sue Elkind and she is presently working towards her 500hr advanced training with Tiffany Cruikshank of Yoga Medicine. She also continues to study yoga philosophy with Dr. Douglas Brooks.
